Returnal’s Steam release could be coming sooner than expected as the third-person sci-fi game keeps receiving updates for its “listing.” The weird part is that the game hasn’t been confirmed for Steam yet, but the listing (which is almost definitely for Returnal) is giving the game away slightly.
Back in May, a new product was logged in the Steam database that went by the codename “Oregon.” This is clearly not the name of the game, which is why the confusion came about. However, certain information in the games listing made it clear that this will probably be Returnal’s Steam release.
What Are the Updates Regarding Returnal’s Steam Release?
The site’s history page now shows that the game – which is still currently in development – continues to get more updates, almost on a daily basis. This really is good news for the third-person sci-fi game, as it’s been over a year since it was initially released for consoles, and it turned out to be quite the game.
What we think to be Returnal’s Steam release had another new update today, with the listing receiving modifications to the game’s achievements, including new localization that spans 19 new languages.
This codename might have been a clever rouse, to begin with, fooling many a person into thinking it was something else. However, people who have already played the console version of Returnal will have noticed phrases such as “Atropos,” “Tower of Sisyphus,” “In Helios,” and “Returning,” which are prominent signifiers of which game it would be – you’re not fooling anyone about the secrecy of Returnal’s Steam release.
May was a busy month because a source shared some footage of Returnal running on a PC via a prototype port, which suggested that the game would follow the path of other PlayStation exclusives and find its way onto the PC via Steam. This is definitely one to keep an eye on as it develops, but we could still be waiting some time for Returnal’s Steam release, that’s for sure.
